A Week of Giveaways

Last week I celebrated my one year anniversary on Instagram. I wasn’t even going to mention it but I really wanted to thank all of you for your support and encouragement this past year. Then I came up with an idea to give away five of my favorite things during the week. And I was determined to make it happen.

So I made a list of my favorite things that I could afford to give away. Here is the list I came up with.

  1. My vintage black and white flowered dinner plates. (Winner was Debi @treasure.nest)

2. Fresh hydrangeas delivered by Flowers by Gallonei. (Winner was Nancy @whiteshabbycottage)

3. Pier 1 burlap placemats (Winner is Holly @clintonrivercottage.)

4. Galvanized vases by @saveoncrafts. (Winner is Traci @tracidburges)

5. Silhouette Cameo machine (Winner is Emily @belleofthefarm!!!) And thank you @silhouette for sponsoring this fabulous prize!

Thanks so much to all of you for participating in the giveaways. I hope to do this soon again.
